Webdesign and Graphical User Interface Design

Achieving a perfect combination between aesthetics and usability (form and function) is a passion. To me readability, scannability, accessibility and usability are just as important in webdesign and Interface Design as composition, colour, whitespace, contrast and shape. A good web/interface designer distinguishes himself not by how intricate his design is, but by how he uses key elements in his design to achieve optimal results.

A GUI designer and webdesigner since '98, I have cooperated on many different types of jobs: websites, intranets, extranets, Flash games, apps for iPad or phone, Silverlight apps, dashboards,...

Flash Banners and Flash Animations

I mostly do Flash animations for eLearning applications, product demonstrations, animated banners, Flash games and also a music video (featuring the animated tin toys shown here below).

As banner designer I follow the IAB's technical specifications for online display advertising that (Belgian) agencies have to follow regarding weight, play length, number of loops and clicktags.

Illustrations

I use the gaps in my design planning to create illustrations for a variety of projects. I produce decent work in different styles and for different purposes. It varies from vector art (for example for flash animations) over hand drawn cartoons to semi-realistic Fantasy art for children's books and RPG books (with work going back as far as 1989).

A selection of colourful illustrations is available as framed art prints, posters or post cards from my online Artflakes shop.
